Hi, my name is Angus Lamont. I am currently studying an HND Model Making for the Creative Industries course at college in Glasgow, Scotland. I have always enjoyed making things and being creative, specifically with film. Ever since being introduced to the work of Ray Harryhausen, I have been fascinated with the medium of Stop-Motion Animation, which I am experimenting with. So yeah, hope you find this website interesting, and I hope to post updates regularly :) .

Making the Mould
So I thought I would post another update regarding the stop motion puppet. I have started work on the mould 'housing' for which the Plaster of Paris will be poured into. The walls are made from Foam Board and held together with duct tape. For the bed that surrounds the sculpt, I used Newplast Plasticine, which is what I used for the sculpt. To avoid problems I used a different colour and also coated the sculpt in Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) to act as a sealant. That is all for just now. Hope to start adding the PoP tomorrow. Fingers crossed this works out the way I wanted (this is my first attempt at a mould - prob should have tried a test first now that I think of it).
